BEND, OR -- A Wyoming man lost in the Badlands Wilderness area east of Bend was located after being missing for almost 18 hours. Joseph Hawkins got turned around on a popular but remote trailhead and ended up spending the night in the desert. After his cell phone died, Hawkins family called the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office who dispatched Search and Rescue. Sargent Nathan Gariby says Hawkins was fortunate the weather was mild and there was no precipitation. It was the very first call of the year for the Deschutes County Search and Rescue team, after 140 calls in 2019.
